Injectors

Injectors

  • Proton/H-

  • All ion species …

  • Including radioactive beams

  • Electron/positron


Injectors other uses

Injectors – other uses

  • Protons

    • nanowriters, nanolithography

  • Deuterons >>> neutrons

    • boron/neutron capture therapy (BNCT)

    • neutron tubes

  • Heavier ions

    • fusion

    • ion implanters (chip industry, surface modification, vias, …)

  • Electrons

    • LEED, PEEM, …


Linacs other uses

Linacs – other uses

  • Electron linacs

    • x-rays for radiation therapy

    • radiography

    • food sterilization

    • FELs

  • Proton linacs

    • spallation neutron sources

    • transmutation of nuclear waste

    • radiation therapy

  • Heavy ion linacs

    • radiation therapy

    • fusion


Rings other uses

Rings – other uses

  • Electron rings

    • synchrotron radiation

  • Proton rings

    • radiation therapy (Japan, Loma Linda, MGH)

    • production of radio-pharmaceuticals

    • pulse compressors for spallation neutron source

  • Superconducting magnets

    • new materials

    • MRI


Beams other uses

Beams – other uses

  • EM radiation – IR through VUV to x-rays

    • vibration of biological molecules

    • surface physics/catalysis

    • AMO physics

    • chemical sciences – e.g. combustion

    • environmental remediation

    • lithography – optical elements, wafer characterization

    • protein crystallography

    • LIGA

  • Neutron beams

    • much as above, but probes at the nuclear level

    • sensitive to magnetic moment (memory industry)


Summary

Summary

  • Many sciences have benefited directly from technologies developed in HEP accelerator R&D

    • biology, chemistry, surface science, AMO, condensed matter, protein crystallography

  • Likewise, society has reaped many benefits directly from technologies developed in accelerator R&D

    • MRI diagnosis, use of radio-pharmaceuticals (including e.g. PET), cancer therapies, next-generation computers, modified engineering materials, improving industrial processes
